Stephen Colbert with The Black Belles
Black Belles

As you know, Third Man Records label boss Jack White made three special appearances on The Colbert Report this week, and Third Man recording artist The Black Belles were Thursday night's scheduled musical guest.

Ends up Stephen Colbert performed with the Black Belles who he recorded a single with. That single, titled ""CHARLENE II (I'M OVER YOU)", is already for sale in the Third Man Records Store and on iTunes, and according to a tweet by Stephen, will be for sale in NYC at 11am! More specifically, Stephen writes, "Please DO NOT see me & Jack White 6/24 @ The Lot at the High Line, W. 30th St & 10th Ave in NYC. Doors open at 11am. First come,first serve."

UPDATE: More info from Third Man Records:

The Rolling Record store is with Jack and the gang in New York and will be selling the Tri-Colors of the single Friday the 24th...And Stephen Colbert is gonna help us sell em. But that's not before him and The Belles rock their new jam LIVE for the masses.. Yeah. One gig world tour. Put that in the "Don't Miss" file.

It all goes down at High Line Park at 30th and 10th. The Rolling Record Store opens at 11 and the jams get kicked out soon after... So come see us for Colbert Red White and Blue Tri-Colors and other exclusive merch tomorrow. It's gonna be LEGEND.

UPDATE 2: Third Man Records tweeted "#Colbchella concludes today at High Line Park at 10th Ave & 30th St. @StephenAtHome, @ThirdManRRS, and J Dubs 11:30 to 3!"

Meanwhile watch the video clips with Jack from all three nights, and check out more pictures, and the event flyer, below...

this is painfully unfunny

This all seems very odd.
Sort of like using a ritz cracker in place of a pita triangle for hummus dipping.
Just plain odd I say.

Steven was great on Strangers with Candy, but the Colbert report has gotten a little bloated, too much clapping\cheering, and sadly fantastic when its suppose to be mocking bloated nutty O'Reily of course. Theres maybe 10 minutes of content from Colbert surrounding by too much flash.

Not as funny as it was and Jack White is a glutton for stardom as the be all end all.

Amy Sedaris was great on Strangers with Candy, but her brother's books have gotten painfully unfunny recently. There's maybe 10 minutes of actual material from Sedaris surrounded by too much flash.

Not as funny as it was and the Rooster is a glutton for stardom as the be all end all.

Christ, you all are dicks. Glad I won't be seeing you there - this reminds me why I don't read Brooklyn Vegan regularly, happy to stay out of a readership that includes obviously pretentious pricks like you. Excellent, more room for me at the High Line!

try to convince me that Jack White doesn't write the Black Belles songs and he is not banging at least one of them....

Wow, this is pretty stupid.

This is like when Conan tried to pretend he was a rock star or that Modern Weepers bullshit. These comics need to stick to what they're good at.

who are the Modern Weepers?

The truth is that shit like this is why Jack White switched from Press Here Publicity to Nasty Little Man.

Which is unfortunate for his reputation with the press (not that he has a good one), but the folks at NLM are some of the biggest, insensitive, rudest assholes in the business. Which is why they have the all-star roster they have and the big gets they lay claim to.

Show business, friends. Doesn't take away from the fact that Stephen Colbert is insufferable, and most TMR releases outside of JW bands are boring. But all of this was a pitch, even if it'll crash and burn once folks realize the 'song' sucks.

Every comment on BV is defamation.

I completely agree. The Colbert schtick got old after the first show.

Come to think of it, I agree with the 1st and 4th comments here as well.

Always wanted to see the Third Man Rolling Record Store. :( Tri-color vinyls!

But then I think about how anything that starts collectable never ends up collectable and then I'm okay missing this.

When did Stephen colbert join the horrors?

Posted by Anonymous | June 24, 2011 10:25 AM

Vance DeGeneres to join The Damned?

>>Nasty Little Man are some of the biggest, insensitive, rudest assholes in the business.

so true...thank you for bringing this up. Steve Martin (the head of NLM) could well possibly be the biggest fucking asshole I've ever dealt with in this "biz"

retards are actually going to line up for this?! Please, someone drive by, or walk by and throw eggs at them.

"Please, someone drive by, or walk by and throw eggs at them."

Or better yet DO a drive-by, if you know what I mean.

You know some people enjoyed this. Seems like people at BV like to piss on everyone's parade.

You should see the Catholic Throwdown. It's a shame this wasn't aired:

Comedians used to put albums out on vinyl all the time. I like when people put material on wax..regardless of what it is. Different strokes.

Stephen Colbert is a genius and one of the funniest people who ever existed.

They're both still there signing records at a table until 3.

The 4th comment on this post was a joke... making fun of the third comment.

Posted by Anonymous | June 24, 2011 1:55 PM

you have to be at least 50 years old to think Stephen Colbert is funny.

Posted by Anonymous | June 24, 2011 2:29 PM

First!

Posted by Anonymous | June 24, 2011 2:38 PM

1:55: Upon noticing, I do indeed see it as a joke (I loathe that trendy "copy the same format as the last comment with your comment"), however I still agree with it as if it was serious.

Posted by Anonymous | June 24, 2011 2:50 PM

People treat this stuff like it's some elaborate thing. Jack can cut these records and get them to people in a matter of days. These guys are just having fun. How could you have a problem with this? Everyone on here is so weird and jaded.

More like you have to have a sense of humor and not be some moron kid who doesn't know anything.

Fred Armisen is not as funny as Colbert.
